Curried Couscous

Curried Couscous

Here’s a sweet-savory recipe for Curried Couscous that is made for your flat-belly diet. Flavorful curry and chicken broth balance the sweetness from raisins and apples, while red pepper and parsley add color to the whole-wheat couscous. You might think of couscous (KOO-skoos) as a grain, but it’s actually a form of pasta. Couscous, which originated in North Africa, is made of semolina granules that are steamed or boiled.

Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons curry powder
1-1/3 cups whole-wheat couscous, dry
1/2 cup parsley, chopped
1/2 cup Honeycrisp apple, diced
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
3 tablespoons 100% orange juice
Directions:

  1. In a medium pot, place the chicken broth and curry powder and bring to a boil. Stir in the couscous; cover. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the couscous in a large bowl. Stir in the curry powder until blended.
  3. Add the parsley, apple, raisins, bell pepper, and orange juice. Stir until all the ingredients are incorporated.
